Anchor Chart Idea

Adjectives Blog Post with Free Printables

This anchor chart is interactive. Students use sticky notes with categories such as determiner, observation, and so on to identify each adjective in the sentence. The sticky notes can be removed, so the activity can be repeated with another group of students.

Adjective Teaching Ideas

Bulletin Board Idea

 Select a food item students can sample in class. [I have done this activity with apples, popcorn, and Hershey kisses.] As students eat the food, have them complete a chart with rich describing words (adjectives) like the one below.

 

See Hear Feel Taste Sound
         
         

Next provide students with one or two paper cut-outs of the food item you have selected for this activity. Each student will select the best word(s) from his/her chart and write one word per cut-out.

The cut-outs will then be arranged on the bulletin board in an attractive manner. For example, apples may spill out of a basket. Popcorn may be in a red and white striped box like those provided at the movie theater.
